You should hug a tree

Plants have no brain, so I would say no from what we know today. But what do we know actually ?

I dunno. I have a feeling every living organism feels something. Being aware of it is another story though.

I love trees, they provide great beauty to the landscape. However, I won't hug one. Sorry, but the bark on them is full of splinters, and also bugs at this time of the year. I'll admire them from a distance (pretty much like I do with nature in general lol).

Ditto. Hugging trees isn't exactly the most...pleasant of experiences; if you will. Then again, I'm an insider who admires nature. Go figure.

While I am not exactly the tree hugging type, mainly because of the stuff that Envy mentioned, I do think human beings forget to appreciate them. They've been around since.....well, a very VERY long time and they provide oxygen to the world. They also are rather pretty looking. :3 These days human beings are so obsessed with going to war with each other and hatred that they don't afford the time to simply appreciate trees for what they are.

And as I am typing this, there is a tree cutting company group thing on the road next to my house, which pisses me off. Ironic timing though.

Trees and most plant life respond to stimuli but it's not similar to the sensation of pain. With no nervous system or brain, pain isn't a feeling a plant is capable of experiencing. But they respond to nurturing and attention so it's easy for us to get attached to them as something in our care, and the duality of care and neglect makes us think they respond the same way a neglected creature feels. There is a poetic beauty to how they grow and thrive though, and I certainly can empathize.

I don't think I want to be bitten by the ants that are probably all over it... So, I don't think I will do that.

The tree bark hurts too much to hug... but I do love trees. We take them for granted.
